Friday Letters

Photobucket

Dear Goddaughter of awesome....I can't handle you being in kindergarten. And your mother and I agree that I should file a complaint about this kindergarten nonsense. Your Uncle John on the other hand would like you to be the know-it-all awesome show-off kid in Kindergarten. That being said, I'm fairly sure after exactly one day at kindergarten, you officially speak more french than I do.

Dear Vegetarian Chili...THANK YOU for not being crappy!! I've made veggie chili exactly one other time in my life and it sucked!!! Badly. We ordered pizza. So yesterdays batch of veggie chili thank you for being awesome. Tonight you're invited for dinner again, but this time you will be accompanying french fries.

Dear Husband...Thank you for heading into work later than usual so you could hold me together on my way to my job interview at your place of employment. Also thank you for that email responding to my job interview worries with words of wisdom such as, "The one with the buttons" as your answer to which cardigan I should wear. Also thank you for knowing immediately I was joking when I said I told the staffing manager at your place of employment during my interview that you hate puppies.

Dear Canada...Stop making the rest of the world think everyone who calls you home speaks french. It's making my life as a German speaking Canadian in Switzerland a little more complicated than it needs to be.

Dear Switzerland...Thank you for making buying 36 francs worth of chocolate socially acceptable.

Dear Wedding Quilt...Your are a piece of home that we can wrap ourselves in. You're awesome.

Dear Little girl next door...you make me smile on a daily basis. Whether it's the epic melodramas you act out on the playground with your sister that I can hear through my kitchen window while I make dinner. Or how excited you got when you saw me yesterday and exclaimed to your mom, "MAMA das ist die M├Ądchens mit rosa haare!!!! Sagt Hallo Mama!!!"

Dear Fall...I'm so happy you're here. Pin It Now!

  8. I just read your comment on Hope Squared's blog, about being terrified that you will suck as parents.....I hope you know that that fear means that you will make great parents? The ones who truly suck don't care that they do. Oh, and I didn't know that buying 36 francs of chocolate wasn't acceptable everywhere else! I guess I need to pay more attention to the horrified faces of people around me when I buy myself large quantities of chocolate ;-)
